Crazy Sock Day

On Wednesday 30 October, the De La Salle College, Social Justice Committee made up of dedicated Year 11 and 10 students, ran a “Crazy Sock Day” on the Tiverton Campus to support Catholic Mission.

For a gold coin donation, students on the Tiverton campus were able to come to school in their crazy socks and the student wearing the craziest socks in each year level, won a pair of unique socks. 

The event ran for the cause of supporting the victims of the Sri Lankan Easter Bombings earlier this year, with the raised money going towards helping the rebuilding of damaged churches, and towards providing long‐term trauma counselling to help victims and their families.

Fifa Competition

The Social Justice Committee works hard each week to build awareness and to lend a helping hand where possible. This group also decided to run a Fifa Competition for the Junior Students at Tiverton.

The Junior Fifa Competition ran over two days (Wednesday 6 November and Tuesday 12 November), with teams of students playing each other in front of a crowd of their peers.

This competition was aimed towards supporting Diyagala BoysTown, Ragama, SRI LANKA. With the goal of sponsoring a student’s education at the school. This particular school has been visited by past Year 12 students on the Yaluwo Immersion trip and the Social Justice Committee felt it fitting to support fellow Lasallian students, in which our College shares a valuable connection with.
